Stipula Etruria De Architectura Gaudì Casa Milà Limited Edition Fountain Pen
Nib Medium 18k, two tone Stipula
Few years ago Stipula introduced the “Gaudì”, a first instalment in its limited edition Etruria Architectural Collection. 2010’s
These fountain pens take their name from Antonio Gaudì, an architect from Catalonia, Spain, one of the most representative artists of Modernism and Art Nouveau, an artistic movement of the beginning of the 20th century. He is famous for his unique and highly individualistic style. His works are characterized by outstanding, irregular and fantastically intricate form. Some of his greatest works, have an almost hallucinatory and dream power. In his architectures he used a wide variety of materials from simple clay baked materials to stone, from ceramics to glass and iron and obtained from them the most expressive and astounding effects.
Today Stipula introduces Casa Milà, inspired by one of the best known Gaudì’s buildings. The pen shape and details gently recall the building lines and style through a highly refined and excellent handcraft work.
The colour itself of the fountain pen has been created to resemble an undulating beach of fine sand, like the wavy facade of Casa Milà.
The clip and ring are in a faded matte gold finish and suggest the same original and sinuous design of the architectural elements of Gaudi’s building.
Casa Milà collection includes a limited edition 18 /74 piston fountain pens
Condition: New old stock, with box and paperwork *some pitting on the side of the clip
